This isn't a laser, flashlight, or other product specifically designed to produce light, but since it uses an LED and that lamp is fairly important to its functionality, I figured "what the H-E-Double-Bendy-Straws" - I'd probably get eternal darnation if I failed to add it to this website because of that bicolor (amber/blue) LED in it anyway.

Since it isn't a laser or a flashlight, my conventional review format will not be used here.



My old monitor pooped out on the evening of 09-29-09, so a very kind gentleman stepped up to the plate, gave me money, and told me to pick out a monitor...so I did, and ordered the Asus VW246 24" Wide-Screen LCD Monitor from www.amazon.com shortly thereafter!!!.
